what you see. i don't see it getting worse, but i want to hear what you see. >> i see the u.s. economy improving slowly because we're basically not an export economy as much as china is. i see china continuing to worsen. you can't believe their numbers, but if you look under the numbers you'll see they're all eroding. if you look at what companies tell us, they're all eroding. and buying, they have been stimulating. fixed asset investments up 22% year over year. that's mind-boggling. you look at europe, austerity's going to hurt. 2013's going to be a year to go away from europe. you've had big gains there and stay with the u.s. so i see one economy, the biggest economy in the world, improving. if romney gets in, i think then we go into hyperdrive in the u.s. because it's still got to be jobs led and we don't have those jobs. >> what's your favorite investment right now, steve weiss? >> my favorite investment, my newest investment is i bought j & j. they have a new ceo. i think it's been mismanaged for last decade or so. the guy with the previous guy was on an acquisition tear every day

[applause] and i know you want the same thing for your daughters or sisters or moms or grandma's as i do. as i said in the debate, this is not just a women's issue, but a family issue, an economic issue. i also believe women should make their own health care decisions. >> president obama and romney were questioned about the lilly ledbetter fair pay act
and investors haven't taken into account the impact of currency on these quarters. the u.s. dollar has been stronger during this quarter and europe being weaker and with technology companies having a more global exposure that took a real chunk out of earnings more than people expected that is hitting margins in unexpected way when everybody was hoping things would just hold in there they're really disappointing in big way. you're seeing stocks fall enormous percentages quickly. melissa: do you think these earnings are telling us about something that already went by or are they looking into the future and sort of telling us there's a global slowdown coming? that is what really makes me nervous. >> yeah, if it was just one quarter you could say maybe this was a little bit of an aberration but we're really starting to see a trend of progressive quarters starting to get slower and slower. seeing that out of china, economic growth quarter after quarter, month after month has been on the decline and the pattern is not going in the right direction. it going from the top left to the lower right whe
the theme of this panel, what you recommend in the future as far as how the u.s. should be interacting with those countries, another afghanistan scenario and also the possibility, hopefully we won't be intervening any time soon directly, however, what i am curious about is if that's intervention does not happen, what would be the ideal scenario given the other actors in the region and how they are influencing that? >> the sad reality is this is one of those situations where there is no ideal scenario or even a good scenario. that is what i was alluding to when i opened my comments by saying there are situations where there is no good solution. i would commend, some of you may have read a piece by my friend and colleague in the washington post in which he makes the point that the world and especially the middle east is an awfully messy place, in many ways in which the united states can't be expected, no u.s. president could be expected to solve and resolve everything. the blood shed in syria makes all of us shudder. that doesn't mean there is a u.s. policy option that will bring it to a

in bangladesh, nafis came to the u.s. on a student visa in january. he took classes at southeast missouri university for one semester. one student there said nafis gave him a koran and in one conversation spoke admirably about osama bin laden. >> he told me he did not believe that osama bin laden was involved in the twin tower, that he believed that bin laden was a very good religious man and that a good devout faithful muslim would not do something like that. >> but bangladesh students said they became alarmed when his political views became radicalized. they said nafis watched an al qaeda video while on an airplane. nafis then moved to new york city to attend a computer programming school. it was around that same time that nafis showed up on their radar reaching out for accomplices to help him carry out an attack. that's when agents set up a sting operation. on wednesday they arrested him on charges trying to detonate a 1,000-pound bomb outside of the federal reserve. law enforcement officials said they made sure the bomb was harmless. nafis is currently being held without bond. if conv

, but they are not different from previous administrations. it has been u.s. policy, regardless of who the president is, since the truman administration, that the united states will stick up for israel and ensure its security in a dangerous neighborhood. the distance that governor romney is going to try to play up is the idea that benjamin netanyahu's government deserves the unqualified backing on domestic israeli policy as well this its policies toward the palestinians. it is correct in the sense that the obama administration has been highly critical of the settlements, but let's keep in mind that george w. bush's father, president george h. w. bush had very much the same differences, and went a step further in criticism. host: virginia. murdoch. independence caller -- independent caller. caller: there is hundreds of years of history of this in the middle east. the british and other european nations at one. divided it up and kind of controlled it through occupation. the american policy has always been to support israel, but we do not look as -- at each individual nation as having their own sovereignty, and w

in syria will have impact on russia and it's neighborhood which they have the islamic problem. u.s. argues it is lucky at a distance with two oceans on either side and not as exposed as russia is and nobody has been able to tell him what happens when assad leaves. they also believe that the worst groups around assad much leave which pushes assad to dig his leels in and pushes russia to make it happen. i'm sharing the conversation i had with him. and that was not going to happen. and his key question is what happens when assad leaves and this is where the communique and approach we're discussing becomes important. let me for theoretical purposes say for arguments sake. let's say everybody grease to the political set mment and transition. and we agree for a period of a year to go through the political transition. the key question becomes at what point does assad leave? the worst argue that is with assad in place, you will not be able to make any changes or go through transition. so assad must go up front. the russians would want assad to go but maybe at the point when you establish the inter
